Bombardier job cuts will hurt local economy – Long

Alliance Deputy Leader Naomi Long has expressed sadness at news of 300 job losses at Bombardier. The cuts at the company will affect some of its subcontracted workers, but permanent staff will be unaffected.

The East Belfast MLA stated: “This is devastating news for those affected by the cuts. It is an extremely difficult time to be looking for new employment.

“The announcement will also hurt the economy in East Belfast. It will have a significant negative impact on local shops and other businesses.

“Bombardier is a large and versatile company and I would hope that it can withstand the effects of the economic downturn without further job losses.”
